We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked relevant statutory bodies, transport organisations, local interests and residents groups and individuals for their comments on the draft Local Implementation Plan, in particular whether they agreed with the priorities identified and the local schemes to achieve them.

You Said

There was a broad cross-section of support for the various schemes in the draft Local Implementation Plan and requests for more on cycling and walking.

We Did

We provided greater clarity on cycling and walking. The revised draft was approved by the Mayor of London and has now been published. It can be found at

We Asked

We asked residents about proposed changes to our Council Tax Reduction Scheme, which would increase the council tax reduction in line with inflation. The proposals aimed to better support low income households by recognising that as inflation increases it is important that the support our low income households receive increases too.

You Said

You said that low income households should be supported and that applying an inflationary increase to their Council Tax entitlement was the fairest way to achieve the correct level of support.

We Did

We introduced an inflationary increase to all the income bandings within our scheme in line with the increase in Consumer Price Index but limited any increase to  5% should inflation exceed that level.

Further information about this decision can be found by clicking here.

We Asked

In August 2019 the draft strategy was published for an 8-week public consultation. Nearly 300 people responded to this consultation. Community Action Sutton and their partner organisations undertook face to face activities to engage with people who might not have completed the online survey. They spoke to 590 people. 

You Said

The strategy was too long, contained too much jargon and the vision needed to be more measurable. We also received lots of comments and questions about different sections of the strategy.

We Did

We made the strategy shorter, removed the jargon and introduced new chapter headings. We also published a series of FAQ documents on the website to answer commonly asked questions. These are available at
